The FCC’s plan to undo net neutrality is about to be revealed
FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s plan to reverse Title II changes could be presented later today.
Republican chairman Pai is expected to either unveil a formal plan on Wednesday while Americans are distracted by holiday preparations, or potentially on Friday, while Americans are busy shopping for Black Friday bargains.

And yet Ajit Pai and his GOP majority in the FCC intend to dismantle the rules that keep the Internet a level playing field. Reports indicate that Pai will issue a "full repeal," reversing a decision to treat broadband as a utility and removing protections preventing ISPs from blocking, slowing down or charging extra to deliver different kinds of content, while also reassigning regulation of any anticompetitive behavior to the FTC.

How Facebook Figures Out Everyone You’ve Ever Met
In real life, in the natural course of conversation, it is not uncommon to talk about a person you may know. You meet someone and say, “I’m from Sarasota,” and they say, “Oh, I have a grandparent in Sarasota,” and they tell you where they live and their name, and you may or may not recognize them.
Facebook's reach is insanely creepy. Among the things outlined in this article is the fact that even if YOU never upload your work email address or provide your phone number Facebook still has it. Because someone else did and they've tied it to you.
